Now that international borders have opened up and people are starting to travel to their favourite destinations again, this would be a great time for a friendly reminder to look out for pick pockets and sticky fingers.
In this case, when you’re opting to visit popular party spots, do avoid seemingly drunk, random strangers who approach you for hugs, even if they’re pretty girls.
Frederik de Vreese, who is from Belgium, took to his YouTube channel, PrimeTimeThai, to showcase how his gold chain was taken in a mere 10 seconds, after a lady tipsily approached him for a hug. At the time, he had been taking a video to showcase the nightlife at Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, Thailand.
In the video, the woman can be seen immediately reaching for the gold chain around de Vreese’s neck, before embracing him. As she whispered some things to de Vreese to distract him, she sneakily detaches the gold chain from his neck as he brushed her off.
Based on a report by Daily Mail, de Vreese shared that she was offering sexual services to him.
“Where you go, honey? I go to your room, I go f*** you,” the woman had whispered.
Only upon reviewing the footage later did he notice that his gold chain had been taken.
“The chain belonged to my grandfather, it was in the family for many years. I think it was worth around 800 Euros (RM3,728.51). I’m devastated. It had a lot of sentimental value,” he said.
De Vreese, who believes the girl was part of a gang of scammer, has since made a police report on the incident.
“I think the thief was part of a gang. She had a very distinctive tattoo so I hope that people can help to track her down,” he added.
So hey, have fun on your travels out there, but always be wary and careful of fast-fingered thieves so may be targeting your jewellery.
And no, not everyone is out there trying to hand out free hugs.
